Going to a doctor

You are automatically assigned a doctor (General Practitioner) when you register for your CPR number.

When you receive your Yellow Health Card (sygesikringsbevis), you can see the name, address and telephone number of the doctor you are assigned to. 

Before you go to your doctor, you need to call and make an appointment or use an online booking system.

Remember to bring your Yellow Health Card (sundhedskort) when you visit your doctor.

Making a doctors appointment

Have your CPR number ready when you call your doctor. This helps the doctor or nurse to find your records and view your medical history.

Most doctors have telephone hours every morning between 8.00 to 9.00 a.m. You can call to talk about urgent issues that require medical assessment. 

If your condition requires special attention, your doctor will refer you to a specialist or a hospital.
